We now find that the tariffs which
will have to be considered at these

Kissimmee on the 26th day of March,

Federal Judge Has Ruled that Man Manufacturers
ufacturers Manufacturers May Put a Reasonable
Amount v.t Poison in Food.
Washington, Feb. 26. Millers and
food manufacturers throughout the
country .won a decisive victory over
the government yesterday when the
supreme court held that federal in inspectors
spectors inspectors under the pure food law
could not condemn "bleached" flour,
unless they proved that the flour
contained enough poisonous ingre ingredients
dients ingredients added in bleaching to make
the flour injurious to health.
Officials of the department of agri agri-culture
culture agri-culture have contended that the add add-ing
ing add-ing of any quantity of poisonous in ingredients
gredients ingredients was in violation of the law.
They concentrated their efforts to
have this principle established in the
bleached flour case, because the de decision
cision decision will be applicable to every
other proceeding involving an article
of food claimed to contain an added
poisonous or deleterious ingredient.
The case decided today originated
in western Missouri. The govern government
ment government sought to condemn 625 sacks
of flour bleached by the Lexington
Mills Company by the so-called "Al "Al-sop
sop "Al-sop process." It claimed in bleach bleaching
ing bleaching the flour, certain nitrates, or
poisonous ingredients, were added,
and that this violated the law, no
matter what the quantity. The dis district
trict district court so held and.the jury con condemned
demned condemned the flour. The circuit court
of appeals held the district' court
erred, and so "dial the supreme court.
In announcing the decision of the
court' Justice Day pointed out that
the government only complained that
hTTC f s

l.S parts of one million of a pois poisonous
onous poisonous character was ad Jed. He held
that every word of the pure food law
prohibiting in interstate commerce a
food if it contained "any added pois poisonous

gredients" ingredients" must be given its true
"If it cannot by any possibility in injure

said the justice, "such flour though'
having a small addition of poison poisonous

not be condemned."

Shortly after noon there were
seventeen boats on the scene, each
anxious to show its ability to get ov over

About 2 o'clock the judges barge
was towed out and anchored at the
starting bouy.
And at 2:15 the first race, free for

The third, and final, race was a

upon the outcome of the suffrage
campaigns in Pennsylvania and New
York, which are the next important

battlegrounds for the equal suffrage
cause. If these two states were
added to the suffrage list the wom women

controlling 128 electoral votes, or

Illinois should be added to the

South is Attracting Thousands of
Solid Home Seekers
Oklawaha, Feb. 25, 1914.
Editor Star: Mr. VY. H. Fogg,
district passenger agent of the Cen Central
tral Central Railroad of Georgia, stated to

me in a conversation a fewdays ago,
that homeseekers from the west passj
thru Atlanta at the rate of 1,000 perj

month bound for Florida. They are
neither tourists nor settlers, or for fortune
tune fortune hunters, but practical minded
men, who are alert, to opportunity,
and who will contribute to the up upbuilding
building upbuilding of the territory in- which
they settle. They are a part of the
broad, steady tide of enriching immi immi-grantion
grantion immi-grantion that is rolling southward.
Railway officials reckon that the
majority of these Americans from
the west remain -in Florida. That is
a circumstance of that far-reaching
influence to the southern states. In
a region where only a small percent

age of the land is under cultivation.

and where a vast expanse of natural
resources awaits development, every
new settler who is upright and thrif thrifty
ty thrifty means the creation of new wealth
and prosperity. Indeed, this type of
immigrant the immigrant whose
ancestory and tradition are from the
same stock as our own people is
more important than any amount of
capital, in the South's development.
. It is only within recent years that
there have been systematic efforts to

make the South's opportunities
known in other quarters of the Un Union.

the formation of a Florida Chamber
of Commerce, same as Georgia has
organized, that our state may enjoy
its due part of the 'South's widening

advantages and sfand organized for
better results, is a suggestion I offer.
Intelligent publicity -will be striking strikingly
ly strikingly shown thru the response which
will follow the initial efforts of the
railroads in this field of enterprise.
A little judicious advertising, k few
years of well directed campaigning
by the railroads have brought home home-seekers

It has been noticed for a long time
that monkeys become more stupid a3

cently recently no plausible explanation for this
condition was available. Edmond
Perrier, a French scholar, says the
reason is that the temporal muscles
grow upward from birth until adult
age and that by compressing the brain
they prevent its development.
In the same connection a number of
experiments have been made showing
how the development of the skull or
the face is influenced by the compres compression

teeth of dogs were extracted as. soon

new scientific view of the universe,

tionsThat EruptionsThat of Krakatoa in 1833
About the Worst of Which
There Is Record.
The eruption of Sakura recalls that
of Mount Pelee, which destroyed St.
Pierre, Martinique, the most beautiful
city in the West Indies, with appalling
suddenness. Like Sakura, the vol
canic peak of Pelee had been quies-J
cent for a long period, and was be- j
lieved to be practically extinct. It j
smoked a little for a few days before
it mew up, out it naa previously sent
up similar thin, vaporous clouds at
intervals of ten or twenty years so
nobody paid attention to its seemingly
harmless activity. Without warning
a pillar of rock shot up from the crater
of Mount Pelee to a height of nearly
100 feet, and a rent opened half-way
up the mountain's slope, from which
blew a hot blast, stupefying and incin incinerating
erating incinerating every organic thing in the path
of its withering breath. In less time
than it takes to tell, St. Pierre, with
nearly its entire population, was wiped
out and buried in the -rain of ashee
which followed the explosion.
In its tremendous force, however,
the eruption of Sakura more nearly
resembles that of Krakatoa in 1882.
This is believed to have been the
greatest cataclysmic disturbance suf suffered
fered suffered by the earth in historic times,
and possibly within the more recent
of the geologic eras. Krakatoa was a
volcanic peak rising 2,000 feet above
sea level, in Sunda strait. After warn warning
ing warning manifestations, which continued
several days, the outburst came on
August 27. The entire northern half
of the volcano was blown away, and
the soundings subsequently made
showed a depth of 1,000 feet of water
where the mountain had stood. An
eye-witness of some of the prenomena
observed from the shore of Java pro processions
cessions processions of native boats, held by a
current many times more irresistible
than that of Niagara and sucked into
the vortex caused by the great hole
torn in the floor of the ocean. It is
estimated that the column of stones
and ashes thrown up by Krakatoa's
explosion shot up to a height of 17
miles." Nearby islands were covered
with volcanic debris to the height of
the tree tops of their forests. The
dust particles left floating in the upper
strata of the atmosphere encompassed
the earth as with a belt 75 degrees
wide, producing a deep red glow in the
sky after sunset for months after the
upheaval. On the day of the" eruption
and for several days thereafter lamps
had to be lighted at Batavia at noon.
The waves started by the explosion
reached almost around the earth. They
were distinctly observed at Cape
Horn, and were perceptible even in
the English channel. The most re remarkable
markable remarkable fact, however, was the dis distance
tance distance to which the noise of the explo explosion
sion explosion traveled. It was audible In the
Philippines, 1,400 miles; at Ceylon,
2,000 miles, and in South Australia
2,200 miles away; and a sea captain
claims to have distinctly heard it all
the way across the Indian ocean off
The Destroying Teeth.
It Is somewhat cruelly said that a
number of prominent men, civil and
military, who have passed away in
Washington recently, ate themselves
into untimely graves.
Of course this might well be true
of the civil persons, but what are we
to think of our stalwart army and
navy officers succumbing to soups and
; salads, riddled by rib roasts and rag-
outs and driven down and out by
j souffles and sirloins!
I In these piping times of peace when
? the dove twitters on the epauletted
' shoulder, will the insidious enemy
rout an ornamental soldiery with pot pot-age
age pot-age and with pudding?
Where are the army regulations?
Where are the shades of the ragged
continentals starving at Valley Forge?
Where are the abstemious habits of
the warriors of old?
I Where are a lot of things that have
' been mislaid?
j When Cadmus sowed the teeth and
the soldiers sprang Into life, he cer certainly
tainly certainly didn't dream that teeth would
also lay them low.
Luxury of Sugar.
Sugar was considered an article of
luxury in Europe until tea and coffee
became usual articles of diet. Sugar
was then used to sweeten these bev beverages
erages beverages and so gradually came to have
a.nrominpnt nart in tha daily diet, fie-

Where is it ?

fore the days of sugar much more
meat was eaten and the drinking of
alcoholic beverages was much more
common. The fair maiden who could
not, with impunity, drink a pint of ale
for breakfast was unusual. Perhaps,
in spite of the fact that most of us
eat too much of it, sugar is a blessing.
Even oversweetened coffee and cereal
covered with sugar sound more bene beneficial
ficial beneficial than a pint of ale and half a
pound of beef for breakfast.
Boy Nature.
Bishop Olmsted was talking about
boy nature.
"Boy nature, he said, "shows itself
in numberless ways. I once said to a
little boy:
"'Do you know the parables, my
"'Yes, sir,' he replied.
'"And which of the parables, said
I, 'do you like best?
I like the one,' he answered, after
a moment's thought, 'where somebody
leafs and fishes."
